New 40k FAQs WTF!

Postby BANE » Sat Feb 16, 2013 8:19 pm

So as we all knew it was coming its no real suprise that SM and BT can now take a stormraven. What is a suprise is the totally dumb way GW have wrote the FAQ!

The two exceptions are the storm raven and storm talon which are only available to armies chosen from codex SM and codex BT.

I know what they mean but the use of the word ONLY is stupid!

Yup all flyiers have lost the ability to deep strike and skies of blood no longer allows for safe scatter of jump pack troops with DoA!!!!
What, no image sigs!

DS and DoA grievances aside... Now that every smurf out there now has access to the Raven.... Does this mean that BA now get all the fliers they were disallowed for having the Raven in the first place?

I think it's stupid to allow all SM to get the raven - this is what made BA stand out. I'm starting a salamanders army and got a talon, but would have got a raven (even though I think this is a silly idea)...

The thing that annoys me is this, they removed DS and skies of blood from what appears to be a fluff/logic reason but then took a massive dump on BA fluff by giving everyone the raven.

Also if it is from a improving sales view why not give it to SW too, or talons and storms to BA.

Its nonsense

You mean aside from the death company, the sanguinary priests giving all and sundry FNP, the elite jump pack rules, the unit killing dreadnoughts, the unique flamey predator and an actual god/vampire for a special character. Yeah - they're just vanilla without the raven...... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Muhahahaha. Goo point herne.

Da also stand out with their flyers. Will they give them to all sm eventually? Hard when they have a dirty great big rw logo on the tail section. ;)

I think each chapter should get a few things that are unique.

Agreed - but I am sad to see 'scout' go off the valkyries and vendettas - does that mean no more coming on foreign board edges? That was kind of the point of them!!!!

So they did a mass bunch of updates in mid january, now mid febuarys??
)How many have been updated
2) Is it just flyer stuff
(Meh flyers die I don't care about flyers..Broke MR6s heart last week when I proved to him nightsychtes/flyercron couldn't take quantum shielding--one more army beatable (tick))

Not at home or near wifi at mo, relying on keyboard with broken G, 1 and K all of which I need to use charcer map for, (shortest posts you'll ever get from me)
Barely even lurking..

Updates are mostly flyers - key points being loss of deepstrike, addition of stormraven and stormtalon to SM and BT lists, oh and as often as they can plug it **** BUY OUR NEW FLYERS BOOK *** -Meh - most of the rules from which are already in the crusade of fire book, WD or other sources.

It does look like rather a disappointin year for expansions, this reissue thing, and now we're hearing that apocolypse is the big summer thing, with rules that take into account 6th ed, and a couple of points tweaks...
I hope they're not actually paying designers to do this "year of copypasta"
(still liking 6th ed, its just these are the first glut of expansions that make me feel like LH does in that "why bother" is the start the middle and the end of the matter)

Presumably Apocalypse will also be "GW Exclusive" too. At least I read English though.
